Collins Modern Classic editions of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings collected in a beautiful boxed set.
The Hobbit is a tale of high adventure undertaken by a company of dwarves, in search of dragon-guarded gold. A reluctant partner in this perilous quest is Bilbo Baggins, a comfort-loving and unambitious hobbit. Filled with encounters with trolls, goblins, elves and giant spiders, riddles and the discovery of a Ring, this wonderful story also forms a prelude to The Lord of the Rings. It is here that we learn of the nature of this ring and travel with Frodo Baggins and his eight companions on their terrifying quest to destroy the Ring of Power in Mount Doom.Review:
